SONG OF THE TURTLE AND FLAMINGO. A lively young turtle Ilved d'"Tn b the bank' Of t dark rolling stream called the Jingo, . And one summer day, at he went out to play, Fell In love with a charming flamingo An enormously genteel flamingo I An expansively crimson Humlngol A bciiutirul, bouncing flamingo I Spake the turtle In tones like a delleale whotzo "To the water I've oft seen you In go. And your form hat Impressed itself deep on my hell, Vou perfectly modolod flamingo I i You uncommonly brilliant flamingo ! You tremulously 'A one' flamingo! You luex-pres-sl ble flamingo I "To be sure I'm a turtle, and you are a bulle, And mu language Is not your Una lingo ; Buttmlle on me, tall one, and be my bright flame, You miraculous, wondrous flamingo I You blazlngly beauteous flamingo I You turtle-absorbing flamingo I You Inflammably gorgeous flamingo I Then the proud bird blushed redder than ever before. And that was quite un-nec es-sa ry, And she stood on one leg and looked out of one eye. The position of things for to vary This aquatics!, musing flamingo! This dreamy, uncertain flamingo ! This embarrassed, harassing flamingo! Then she cited to the quadruped, greatly amazed1 "Why your passion toward me do you hurtle? I'm an ornithological wonder of grace, And you're an Illogical turtle A wadilllng, Impossible turtle ! A low-minded, grans-eaten turtle ! A highly Improbable turtle!" Theu the turtle sneaked off with his nose to the ' ground, And never more looked at the lances ; And falling asleep, while Indulging his grief, Was gobbled up whole by Agassis The peripatetic Agassii! The turtle-dissecting Agalzl The Illustrious, industrious Agasslt ! Go with me to Cambridge some cool, pleasant day, And the skeleton lover I'll show you ; He's In a hard cuse, but he'll look in your face, Pretending (the rogue I) he don't know you; Oh, the deeply deceptive young turtle ! The double-faced, glassy cased turtle ! The grttn, but a very mock lurtle ! -James T. Fields, St. Nicholas for August. Select Story. ROMANCE OF HISTORY. The Most Beautiful Woman of Her Time. In the early part of the fourteenth cen tury the Island of Corsica was a bone of contention between the Maritime He- publics of Italy, the Duchy of Savoy, and the Kingdom of France, Thela'ter, at that time, was ruled by the chivalrous Francis the First, one of the most remarkable characters known to history. Ills ambition was only equalled by his redness audacity, and he alone, of all princes of his time, ventured to break a lance with the powerful emperor, Charles the Fifth, who so disastrously defeated him at 1'nvia, in 1521 In the preciding yeai.King Francis Lad a quarrel with his wife, who had re proached him for his infidelities. One day, madden ? by her taunts, he said to his valet, Gavini, a Cursican : "Ah, I must pet rid of Her Majesty. Her temper is too bad. I am sure that the Holy Father will grant me a divorce from her. But where shall I find a new wife?" "Your MajeBty has only to choose from among the most beautiful princesees of Europe," said Gavini. ''But there is not a single beautiful princess in Europe," rejoined the king, almOBt angrily. "Anielie, of Savoy, is the only one that is not absolutely homely, and I hate her futher so bitterly that I should bu -eluctant to enter into a union with a member of nis family." "If your Muj sty will permit me," said the wily Coreican, "I could tell you of a lady with royal blood in her veins who is young and handsome enough to grace the throne of France by your side." "And who is she?" asked the king, ergerly. "She is the Marchioness Ieolena Bal lo." "I never heard of her." "She is the richest woman in Corsica, where her ancestors, since time imme morial, have owned most of the real es tate, and where they have been more powe ful than the real rulers of the island ever were. Her grandmother was a niece of the Emperor Muximi:ian, and she is the last of her race, your Majesty." "The last of her race, Gaviui, and still unmarried?" "Your M'jjesty, there is a strange tale to this," replied U.tvini. "About seven years ago the marchioness with her aged father was having a boat ride off Ajaccio. A thunder storm sprang up, and the frail UHrx. wiiD in uungerui capsizing. J. lie 010 marquis was frightened to death. " Tny, my child,' he cried in his ter ror, pray to ner wno aione can save us. Pray to her,and promise to remain a vir gin unless a king should come to solicit your nana. "Isolena look that pledge, and now she is mistress of immense estates, and one of the most beautiful women in the world." ' The amorous king, who acted as if he had already got rid of his legitimate wife, had by this time become deeply interest ed in the subject. "Gavini," he said, "how does this mar chioness look ?" . . "Your M..jesty, I have truly never seen a lady worthier to adorn a throne than she. She is the fairest daughter whom Italy, the land of pretty women, ever gave birtn to. laii, slender, majestic, with a complezion of marble, and features which Phidias would have gladly chiseled in stone; she has ou her , ripe lips the tempting smile of Cupid, and in her black eyes all the fire of the goddesses of love." in tnis manner tne artful valet stiuiU' lated the desires of his royal master, un til the latter said to him: "I should like to make her acquaint ance; but that has to be done in a very discreet manner." . After hemming and hawing for a long while, Gavini suggested that he himself migni go to Corsica ana mane overtures to the beautiful marchioness. The king eagerly embraced this offer. "Yon shall go, Gavini," he cried. "Go to Montpas, my treasurer, and draw as many livrea in gold as yon may need." "But, your Majesty," said the valet, "money is not sutlicient for such a mis sion. I ought to have to that end, also, 'What?" "A position. I ought to be clothed with the rank of a Minisur, your highness." The king looked at his valet a minute without saying anything. Then he burst into laughter.- "Gaviui," he exclaimed, "you are the most impudent rascal I ever saw. But your idea is a good one. -Yes,, you low born villain, shall go for once as my en voy to Corsica : Prevail apon the mar- I to L'. to He of at that of in 136 and their chionesB, whose charms you extol so en thuBiusticAlly, to come to l am, and shall reward you rieht royally," On the following day, Uavini, to whom had been riven, to the royal credentials dismay of the king's Minister of State, set out for Corsica. He had a large re' tinue of servants, and acted in perfect keeping with the exalted position to which his master had so suddenly raised nun. In the due coerse of time he arrived at Ajaccio, and called, with all ittteudunts, iipon the Marchioness JJella JJullo. He had not exuuuerated her charms, She was, indeed, a most charming and attractive woman. Upon presenting the credentials to her lie said "My royal master, your excellency, has entrusted uieti bring about more cordial relations between r ranee and the lsl nd which you are mistress, if not by Divine ngut, at least, ny the right or your sur passing beauty as by virtue of the time henored claims of your ancestors. The compliment was not lost upon the handsome creature. She dismissed the valet-envoy in the most gracious man ner. "I will capture her easily," thought uavini, as be took his departure. 1 1) lieved she was too intelligent to beguiled by such transparent flattery. Very well so mucu tne better tor me." But a young admirer of .the marchion ess, Mguor (Jonde Vrao. who in years gone by, had been at the gay court of t ranee, had recognized him. The Conde solicited a private interview with the maichioness after Gavini had withdrawn At first she hesitated to grant the re quest, because Conde had so often urged her to give him her hand. Hut lie was so persistent this time that she went with him to her boudoir, "Isolena." he said to her. "do vou know who that man is?" "The Envoy of the Kins of France." she answered. "His credentials show it." "That n.av be, Isolena." he rejoined but I am sure that the king, in sending the fellow " "The fellow?" "Yes, the fellow. Isolena. I am sure that the king in sending the fellow to you nas played a very coutemptiule trick upon you." "How so 7" because tins rjretem ed envov is no . J. ... ; - - --- otner than King r rancis's body servant." A menial I" she cried, with flashing eyes, "Yes, the lowest of the low; he who dresses and undresses Ilia Mujesty of j ranee." "And the king could put the affront on me oy sending such a rascal to me r "It is not yet all. Isolena. This Gavini is e Corsic in, a serf of your father's who tied the country twenty years ago, Be1 cause he had committed seyeral disgrace' ful thefts." The beautiful marchioness was by this time so enraged she uttered the follow ing terrible oath : "Had I to-day King Francis in my power I Bhould cause him to perish as miserably as the dog whom be has Bent to me. I swear it, and should I lose my own life and ruin this whole island which I love so well I" At midnight, on the same day, Gavini was dragged Irom hia bed and thrust in to a dungeon. bix hours later he was confronted by tne executioner and the indignant mar chioness. You are about to die." she said cite- otiBly, to the ill-fated man. flow dare you treat the sacred person of an envoy in this manner?" he cried. lhe sacred person of an escaped con vict and thief 1" the exclaimed.

Now listen to me. 1 shall have your fleBh torn from your limbs with red hot pincers if you do not coufess what induced King Fran cis to commit so infamous an outrage as to send you to tee in the capacity of an envoy." uavini referred once more to the invi- olubility of his office. bhe ordered the executioner to torture him. A horrible scene ensued. The prisoner was placed on a wooden bench, and then the executioner, after binding him, began to tear off his flesh with red hot pincers. for ten minutes the victim, though uttering the most uuearthly yells, refused confess. At last w! en the sgonv became too treat, he told the marchioness what he had come to Corsica for. This still added to her furv. "What!" she cried, 'King Francis has believed me to be so low as become his mistress! Me, who has more ancient blood in my veins than alois ever had I Oh, he shall rueit! He shall rue it!"

"Have her hair cropped," he ordered, have her clad in hempen garments and then whipped through the streets of the city." This was done on the following day. The beautiful marchioness suffered the torture with astounding fortitude. Not a cry of pajn escaped her tightly compressed lips, as the executioner's lash descended upon her naked back. At last she opened her mouth; a stream blood issued from it. "Who will avenge me?" she gasped. She was avenged a few months later when Francis the First wasoverpowered Pavia, taken prisoner and to badly beaten that be exclaimed : "All is lost save honor!" a THE CENTENNIAL ATTENDANCE. In May the average daily number was 19.946; in June the average daily num ber was 25.756; in July the average daily number was 24,481 ; in August the average daily number was 33,655;' in September the average daily number was 81,961; in October to 14th the average daily number was 80,967. It was the tremendous Pennsylvania day in Sept ember that raised the daily, average of month above the October average. Excluding that the daily average of the twelve days of the present month is grea'er than any in the very extraordi nary experience of that Centennial ex hibition. In its pecuniary results the Centennial already largely exceeds those any exhibition yet held. The greatest return was at the London exhibition of 1851. viz. $2,121,610; the next at Paris, 1867, when it was 12,103,677, The receipts for gate money during the past days of the Centennial, to October 14th, were 12,686,603.75. ,Those who live near blacksmith and machine shops, and can get iron filings rusty chips of iron, and will work them into their flower beds, will add greatly to the rich and bright coloring of flowers. A sili'.ni A KNOCK-DOWN ARGUMENT FOR THE HEATHEN. [From the San Francisco Call.] The other day, when the wind whist led sad toned jigs a round the flattery, little old man entered a saloon in that vicinity and asked the bar keeper if he could leave some tracts there. "A whole car load, if you want to," was the prompt reply, and the little old man placed a package on a beer table and sottly said : ; "There's no nobler cause than th cause of the heathen. We should all contribute a small share of our worldly wealth to shed the Gospel light across the seas . 1 ' ! A pair of boxing gloves were softly re posing on a table, and the little old man felt of them and went on : . "it makes me sad to see such sinful things lying around when the cost of one glove might save a dozen souls in Africa. Three or four of the boys had dropped in, and the saloon keeper winked at them and replied. "Do you want to earn ? for the heathen?" "Verily. I do." ' "Put on the gloves with me and knock me down and I'll ante up cash enough to convert a whole regiment of African sinners. "The cause is noble, the inducement great," mused the little old man, as he toyed with the gloves. lhe boys encouraged him to go in, de siring to see him knocked wrong end up and he finally got out of his overcoat with the explanation. "It can t be a sin to box lor the cause of the heathen." The saloonist meant to lift him over one of the tables at the first blow, but the blow was warded off very handsomely and the little old man sighed. 'Ah um ! lhe heathen walk in wickedness and they have souls to be saved!" "Look out now !" cried the saloonist as he got in a left hander. "Verily, I will, and I will give thee one in return for the heathen. He struck a straggenng blow, and the saloonist didn't feel quite so enthusiastic as on the start, fie took the defensive and he soon had all the work he could do. "That s another for the ignorant minds on the far off short!" sighed the little old man as he knocked the saloonist against the wall. There wasn't any "science" about him but he struck to kill, and his arms were flying about like the tpokes of a wagon wneei. "Don't crowd a feller," called out the saloonist as he was being driven back. and he got mad and put in his hardest licks, lie meant to smash the little old man's nose as flat as window glass, but he could not do it. He got in two or three fair hits, and was beginning to regain his courage when the aged stranger sorrow fully remarked. My tnend, the heathen call, and I can not tarry much longer. Take this one. and may it broaden your views on the heathen Question. Receive this one in the spirit tendered, and you may be sure the f5 snail be a beacon light as far as it will K0. He delivered two sledge hammer blows ngnt and lelt, and the saloonist got the last on tne ear as he dodged the first, ne went over in beautilul style, and as he slowly regained his feet he felt in his vest pocket for the wager. "II you 11 come around here to merit and do that again I'll double the money !" ne growiea, as ne paid the wager. "iiy road points toward liosttng. soft ly replied the old man, "and I cannot tarry. Let us part friendly, for I only boxed thee for the heathen's sake. I gave to thee, thou hast given to the heathen, and now, farewell !" MR. GLADSTONE ON GARDENING. Mr. Gladstone recently addressed the illagers of Howarden, where he has lived for many years, on the benefit of cottage gardening. He said. "The trouble is that the circle of topics opened up by a flower show is not a very large one, but at tne same time it is one which anybody may be very well conten ted to treat. There is not a1 better or wholesome and salutary village institu tion in the whole round that can be named than a flower show; that it is to say, than society of which a flower show is the annual celebration. In the first place, it is one of those independent institutions winch teach the people to exert them selves, and you may depend upon it that man is not a passive and mechanical being. "You don't train man as a plant; he is moral agent, and if any good is to be done to him or to any woman or child and 1 am delighted to see how many young boys and girls have come forward obtain honorable marks of recognition on this occasion if any effectual good is oe done to mem it mus: be done by teaching and encouraging them and help ing them to help themselves. All the people who pretend to take your own concerns out of your own hands and to do everything for your own hands and to do everything lor you I won t say they are impostors : I won't even say they are quacks; but I do say they are rtiis taken people. The only sound, healthy description of countenancing and assist ing these institutions is that which teaches independence and self exertion. "There is no better kind of exertion than this. It is good for your health and good for your independence, because. through a garden is not a very large ming in me nie 01 a cottager, it ts a very considerable element of independence, as well as of comfort, pleasure and satis faction, when well managed and of pro size It makes as sensible addition his meant of living; and, for my part, some times hope that you, many of you. may live to see the day when there will no such thing in this country as a cot tage without a garden." of ni did, tion still tne the on was was of 10 the i, vnd the the saia on end, ROOSTER AND THE HAWK. In Chippewa township, Beaver county, Pa., recently, a rooster killed a hawk in a fair fight in the presence of his havem.
